Kamb­wili still bit­ter, says Ko­maki

Daily Nation Newspaper - - DAILY NATION HOME NEWS -

By OS­CAR MALIPENGA EX­PELLED Roan mem­ber of Par­lia­ment Chishimba Kamb­wili is still a bit­ter per­son fol­low­ing his ex­pul­sion from the party and dis­missal from cabi­net, Pa­tri­otic Front (PF) youth zealot Julius Ko­maki has ob­served.

And Mr Ko­maki has ob­served that cabi­net min­is­ters were not do­ing enough to de­fend Pres­i­dent Edgar Lungu and de­ci­sions made dur­ing their cabi­net meet­ings.

In an in­ter­view with the Daily Na­tion, Mr Ko­maki sug­gested that the best way to deal with Mr Kamb­wili was by defending Pres­i­dent Lungu and all the de­ci­sions made dur­ing cabi­net meet­ing.

He said Mr Kamb­wili was a cow­ard for at­tack­ing cabi­net de­ci­sions which were made when he was in govern­ment.

Mr Ko­maki said there was no need for Cop­per­belt Min­is­ter Bow­man Lusambo and his Lands coun­ter­part Jean Ka­p­ata to have en­gaged Mr Kamb­wili in such a man­ner on Tues­day last week at Par­lia­ment grounds.

He said MPs should con­cen­trate on defending and ex­plain­ing cabi­net de­ci­sions in their con­stituen­cies.

He ob­served that most of the is­sues Mr Kamb­wili was rais­ing such as the construction of the LusakaN­dola dual car­riage­way and the 42 fire ten­ders must have been ap­proved by cabi­net but that line min­istries had not done enough to de­fend them­selves.

Mean­while, Mr Ko­maki has ad­vised Trans­port and Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Min­is­ter Brian Mushimba to re­view his de­ci­sion to ban all pub­lic minibuses with­out seat­belts from op­er­at­ing from Jan­uary 2018.

He said the de­ci­sion by Mr Mushimba would make PF un­pop­u­lar.

“Imag­ine, how peo­ple own minibuses and how many would have their buses parked for not hav­ing seat­belts…a lot of peo­ple will be suf­fer­ing.” Mr Ko­maki said.

He min­is­ter of Lands to with­draw the ban on ex­por­ta­tion of Mukula logs.
